Description

The Miller-Rabin primality check in Botan before 1.10.8 and 1.11.x before 1.11.9 improperly uses a single random base, which makes it easier for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms via a DH group.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libbotan-1_10-0
  • suse-upgrade-libbotan-devel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
